Vista Murrieta (Calif.) defensive back Elisha Guidry has used his offseason to not only stay in shape and stay sharp mentally.
The three-star recruit plays basketball and track to improve his physical and mental skills for the gridiron.
“It's another opportunity to compete and an opportunity to work on footwork for track," Guidry said. "It's making me faster.”
The Vista Murrieta product recently visited Stanford at a junior day event and was impressed with the program and facilities. The defensive back, who holds offers from Northwestern, Oregon State, Dartmouth and Yale, hasn’t been offered by Stanford but is willing to wait and hopeful an offer will come.
“They told me to come to camp so they could see me in person, and then we will see what we will do,” Guidry said.
Guidry plans to go to camp on June 20th and show what he can do.
“I want to go out to the camp and compete to the best of my abilities and show the coaches what I have,” Guidry said. "(I'm) just working hard, working hard on the field working hard in the weight room.”
Guidry describes himself as long and a student of the game. He takes a lot of pride in his ability to study opposing offenses and be in a spot to make plays before the play develops.
“If I can see it before (the receiver) and get there before him, that's important and can change the game,” Guidry said.
